Minnesota Timberwolves vs Utah Jazz prediction

The Utah Jazz are a bad team that doesn't play defense and is on the end of a back to back. Tough sell for the Jazz in this spot. The Minnesota Timberwolves have a clear rest edge as they haven't played since Tuesday. The Timberwolves have won the last three games against the Jazz and all of those wins came by double digits. I don't love the young Timberwolves and big chalk as they do show their youth sometimes and all teams to hang around. Still, the Jazz aren't great. Give me the Timberwolves in a comfortable road win.
